Citizens of The World!

Goldberg, Jonah
December 2005
National Review;12/5/2005, Vol. 57 Issue 22, p40
The article suggests that liberals are using things like the minimum wage and universal health care to pave the way to cosmopolitanism. The origins of this term date back to the Greek thinker Diogenes, who explained that he was not a citizen of any city but of the world (cosmos). Global perspectives that are connected to this are, to varying degrees, the Roman Empire, Christianity, Judaism, the Enlightenment, Marxism, and the New Deal. However, as Marxism fades, the idea of cosmopolitanism grows. It is suggested that the Left identifies itself as anti-U.S. and pro-world. The foreign policy of strategies of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are considered. As the U.S. has gained power, Europe has become increasingly one-world.
